    Disclaimer: This is till a work in progress, nothing is final yet.


    I figured I should go ahead and toss this lovely top hat onto here, still have quite a bit to do still on the modeling side. Also need to find or make the proper textures for said Top Hat. Either way, here is a taste of what is to come. I plan on making this available for all avatars if possible.

    Things to do
    • Increase LOD [DONE]
    • Smooth bezels [DONE]
    • Set up UVs & Textures
    • Get the right tools to import into facerig from blender.
    Feel free to add any comments down below!

    Update Sept 27th 2014 : Model's LOD has been upped, will still have to do optimizations and make sure it meets the import requirements.

    Looks amazing, looking forward to seeing it finished. They are working a way to make it for all characters, but that won't come for a little bit if i do recall myself.

    No, it is for all / lot of the characters, but it is bound to that character (so you need multiple files to make the same tophat for each character

    They plan to have "general" props, that work on each avatar.

    Double posting but meh,

    Currently playng around with the Hat's UV maps and trying to get a good map first out of blender's auto unwrap tools to see what happens in a program such as Substance Painter; currently running the demo beta version, would really like to get it but I don't have the funds right now :(

    Update: No luck getting the UVs set up, seems like there is too much going on in the mesh to do anything with

    Update 2: Remade the mesh with much cleaner geometry, doesn't look quite the way i imagined but It'll do i think.

    Have you tried making a low poly, uv mapped mesh, then copying it to make a high poly mesh ( using multi rez modifier, sculpt, paint ) then baking the maps from the high to the low?

    Wouldn't have mattered really, the geometry was very janky on the old model.

    Haven't had time to work on this prop in awhile, been busy with the nightfury avatar and a FRUS Member's avatar as well.
